|It does sound like gift-giving to me, too. I have one toy--a purple hippo (you can see it in one of my picks) that I treat much differently than my other toys. The little mice and puffs I chase and hit and punt under the fridge for the humans to find (heh heh), but with my hippo, I will cuddle it, sometimes wrap my front paws around it, hugging it close to me while kicking it with my back legs...I'll use it as a pillow, and I'll carry it around the living room, but I usually don't take it too far from my toy basket. I've never made the yowling sound with it in my mouth, exactly, unless I'm in full attack mode.
Could it be an attention seeking activity? You do say that you bug your humans to let you in their bedroom, especially at night. Do you think that perhaps by 'gifting' them your bird you are trying to show off to get them to notice you more?
